1 tbsp toasted (dark) sesame oil
1 tbsp coconut oil
½ cup minced onions (about 1 medium)
340g (12oz) ground pork
1 tsp fine sea salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
1 cup thinly shredded cabbage
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp crushed red pepper, or 1½ tsp chili powder
4 cups chicken bone broth
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp coconut vinegar or unseasoned rice vinegar
1 ½ tsp wheat-free tamari, or 2 tbsp coconut aminos
1 tsp fresh lime juice
4 large eggs
1 tbsp distilled white vinegar
Sliced scallions, for garnish
Crushed red pepper, for garnish (optional)
- In a large pot, heat the sesame and coconut oils over medium-high heat. Sauté the onions for 1 minute, or until they begin to soften. Add the ground pork, salt, and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally to break up the pork, for about 3 minutes, or until it is cooked through.
Combine the cabbage, garlic, and crushed red pepper in a mixing bowl. Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook for 4 minutes, or until the cabbage begins to soften.
- Combine the broth, ginger, tomato paste, coconut vinegar, and tamari in a mixing bowl. Cook for 8 minutes after increasing the heat to medium-high. Add the lime juice, taste, and season with salt to taste.
- Make the poached eggs:
Half-fill a medium-sized pot halfway with water, then add the white vinegar (vinegar helps the egg whites hold together). Bring the water to a boil, then rapidly swirl it with a spoon in a circle. In a ramekin or small bowl, crack an egg. Gently tip the ramekin into the boiling water, then poach the egg for about 3 minutes, or until done to your liking. With a slotted spoon, remove the egg from
the water and place it on a paper towel to drain. Rep with the rest of the eggs.
- Distribute the soup among four bowls. Fill each bowl with a poached egg and garnish with scallions and crushed red pepper, if using. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days. To reheat, heat the soup in a saucepan over medium heat for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently, then top each serving with a poached egg.
